Dictionary of Occupational Titles – O*Net On line

The Dictionary of Occupational Titles or D-O-T (DOT) refers to a publication produced by the United States Department of Labor which helped employers, government officials, and workforce development professionals to define over 13,000 different types of work, from 1938 to the late 1990s. The DOT was created by job analysts who visited thousands of US worksites to observe and record the various types of work, and what was involved.

The DOT was later replaced by an online database called the Occupational Information Network or the O*NET.The entire O*NET database is available free of charge to the general public for job analysis and workforce planning via a searchable web-based application O*NET Online.
